All Saints Sunday
Holy Communion at 8:30 and 11am
Prayer of the Day
O God, generous and supreme, your loving Son lived among us, instructing us in the ways of humility and justice. Continue to ease our burdens, and lead us to serve alongside of him, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
Psalm 34:1-10, 22
1 John 3:1-3
"Robed in White"
The Revelation text for All Saints Sunday is often heard at funerals, and for good reason. It bears deeply comforting imagery and words that describe both the life with Christ that awaits us and the life with Christ in which we now live. Many of the words in this text we have heard in our hymnody and liturgical resources for years. Today, and in all the days to come, may the revelation we hear in this text give us comfort, inspire us in worship, and deepen our faith in all that God has in store.

Luther's ideas continued to influence church musicians in the centuries following the Reformation—from Johann Walter, the first Lutheran cantor, to J. S. Bach.
